Elements: Experience the Power of Donation Through Song and Dance
Join Lifeline of Ohio Saturday, Nov. 5 at 7 p.m. at the King Arts Complex in Columbus on a journey through the effects of the circle of life as we transform the elements (earth, wind, fire, and water) onstage. Dance, original music, poetry and finely woven stories of donation will culminate and light up the stage with memorable movements and visual effects that will motivate the audience to Donate Life.
Tapestry Performing Arts Company (a resident arts group of the King Arts Complex) and Lifeline of Ohio have teamed up to increase awareness in the African American community about organ and tissue donation. “Elements” is the product of this collaboration.
“While African-Americans make up 12.6 percent of the U.S. population, they currently comprise 29.2 percent of those listed on the national transplant waiting list. These figures underscore the desperate need for registered donors in our community,” said Demia Kandi, community consultant for Lifeline of Ohio.
The goal of “Elements” is to utilize the arts as a vehicle to educate the community about organ and tissue donation and increase the number of registered donors. Lifeline of Ohio hopes to honor those who’ve given the gift of life, inspire those waiting for a transplant, and celebrate with those who have received the gift of life. This production is free and open to the public.

We look forward to seeing you there!
